I'm looking for a title of a kunf fu movie I saw perhaps in 1990 that had
these withches that lived in a chinese type house, and one of them was
either a detached head on a basket, or they cut off her head somewhere
along the line and it stayed alive in the basket.

Also if anyone knows any 70's 80's kung fu movies with lots of poisonous snakes
or a lady that killed people bu sending them snakes

There are a lot of 70s and 80s snake movies in the asian horror genre.  Do you remember any specifics about the movie you are looking for?  Is it a period piece or modern?  Kung fu or just regular schmoes?
There is a good article about Snake women films in India and China here:  http://www.illuminatedlantern.com/cinema/archives/snakes_and_snake_women.php

They also have reviews of several films in the genre.


The detatched head is another common motif in asia, but I don't have any good links at the moment because I lost them all when the laptop nuked itself.  It doesn't sound like any of the main Mr. Vampire films, but could be one of the spinoffs or one of the Spooky Encounters spinoffs.

The snake one I know I've read a review of before.

This is one of the more famous ones, but the one you're talking about with a lady killing people with snakes...  I THINK it might be Indonesian.  I can't remember the title.

If somebody could send me a list of such witch movies it'd be nice.
--Also a list about kung fu movies youve seen that feature a lot of snakes.
The detached head movie I saw, was attractive in that it had a very
mysterious feel to it (I tend to favor italian films over asian films and chinese
over japanese, because I feel the former are more dramatic and entertaining
also more gimmiky) These 2 movies I remember having that feel. Also
the one about the withch they lived in a mysterious house and there
was a character with one of those rice picker hats like the  one raiden
has in mortal combat. I remember there were like 2 or 3 witches and one of them
was very angry that they cut her sisters head off.

The snake movie had a very pretty youngish looking chinese girl and
someone had a little baby, and they put small snakes in the bed.
